It’s nearing the end of 2015 and because of that I thought I’d treat you to another Day in the Life post. It’s a PR Day in the Life again but don’t be alarmed.
The person I spoke to this week did a journalism degree and now works in PR.
I spoke to Scott Malthouse, a 27-year-old PR Campaign Manager.
Here’s what Scott told me about a day in his working life!
How did you get into your job?
I’ve worked in the digital marketing industry for about five and a half years, coming in at the bottom level and working my way up. I’ve always had a passion for all things digital and I love working with brands, so PR is perfect for me, really.
What do you like about your job?
Honestly, I think the best thing I did to become a PR was doing a journalism degree. It seems strange to say, but it’s just the other side of the same coin and the skills you learn being a journalist are the same you need to be a good PR.
Also, do work experience as much as possible and network.
